The Bathurst Spring Spectacular will be held on the weekend of, Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th October. Ten (10) beautiful and diverse gardens will be open including the magnificent garden at “The Glen”.

The garden at “The Glen” commenced in 2015 as a project to enhance the garden surrounding the main homestead, and quickly became entirely out of control with the planting of more than 6,000 plants over a period of four years. The Garden at “The Glen” is an area of approximately four acres with formal and informal plantings and multiple sculptures. It is surrounded by the natural beauty of roughly 400 acres of undulating bushland purchased by Simon and Jayne Beverly in the winter of 2014.

Despite rocky terrain the landscaping has incorporated deciduous trees, mass plantings of rosemary hedges, lavender rows, roses and photinias. Native grasses, bottle brushes, roses, camelias, azaleas, grass lawns and much more have been added to create a beautiful and lush oasis. The garden is a magical place to spend time in the outdoors.

To help plan your visit to the gardens we invite you to check the map on the Bathurst Gardeners’ Club website While there you can purchase your tickets online at $20.00 per person for both days. Tickets are also available at the Bathurst Visitor’s Information Centre in Kendall Avenue, Bathurst or at any of the gardens over the weekend of the event. Those visitors who only wish to visit one garden will pay $5.00 at the desk at the garden of their choice.

Local musicians including students from Mitchell Conservatorium will perform in a few gardens, refreshments will also be available in some gardens

The Bathurst Gardeners’ Club Monster Plant sale will take place on Saturday 29th October only, from at 9.30am-3.00pm in the park adjacent to the Bathurst Visitor Information Centre.
